9 Educational Podcasts that Will Make the Most of Your Quaran-Time

While the nation’s kids are bristling against their now literal ‘home’ work, grown-ups are revelling in the chance to learn again. Here are nine educational podcasts - all available on Anghami - to get those gears going…


We’ve already talked to you about the big, wonderful world of MOOCs (massive open online courses), and how you can use your quaran-time to delve into the subjects and topics you’ve long been fascinated by but never got round to exploring. Now it’s time to talk about MOOCs cooler, hotter cousin— the educational podcast.
